Olympics have always been a very touchy political and warfare subject, but I think none will be more contrevorsial than the 2008 Olympics in
We all know how difficult the decision was, considering how China's human rights record is not pretty. It is also not known as one of the "good"
Given that, what would be the result of the Olympics in Beijing? Will it strengthen China's political influence, in addition to the obvious economic
impacts? And what about security? Will the rest of the world trust China to protect the athletes?
A hypothetical situation: say the U.S. goes to war with China. How does it affect the Olympics? Remember, this is hypothetical, I just want to know
how the Olympics are affected by such things.
C'mon, the Olympics is the grandest stage of them all!
